Monsters Continue to Make the Grade

Director Steven Spielberg once said, “With animation, fantasy is your friend.” Our animated friends in attendance at “Monsters University” had another fantastic week at the movies, coming in #1 at the domestic box office with $46.2 million. Newcomers Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy were living the dream and feeling “The Heat” at the #2 spot with a cool $40 million. “World War Z” found the undead roaming toward the lively #3 land with $29.8 million. Also new in town, Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx faced presidential peril within the “White House Down” a dark movie aisle, finding both freedom and disappointment at #4 with $25.7 million. The “Man of Steel” continued to impress his fellow friendly yet inferior characters from the respectable, safe location of #5 with $20.8 million.
Comedy and colorful, computer-animated cuties formed the coolest hangout at the local multiplex this weekend, shaking hands with the President and other powerful men. The ladies, however, nearly took the lead, declaring peace in our proud (movie) nation while offering an alternative to male-driven movies. With high temperatures and hot films predicted all summer long, the coolest view is coming from the big screen!
From seaside days to starry nights, may you find a break from reality thanks to blockbuster entertainment and a bunch of imaginative friends…
